The University of Maine System uses a third-party service, Blackboard Connect, to provide emergency phone, text, and email notifications. Users can choose to receive messages related to campus emergencies, safety information, storm closings (including closings at the Lewiston campus), and outreach messages.

On the USM campuses, the service is an “opt-out” program: all students and employees are automatically entered into the system and may opt out of the service or message subscriptions if they choose.
